This year are hosting a Technology Event – on Saturday, November 7th from 8:30 am - 1:00 pm.    Each of you has great tech backgrounds so this will make a fabulous panel and event.  Holding the event on a Saturday morning for four hours allows teachers to receive CEUs if they are interested.

*The tentative working Agenda:  
We are working with Hamlin-Robinson school (who will have moved into a new facility by November 2015) as the “host – easy to get to and they will have a new lab and training environment set up.

The draft plan is to have each of you talk (panel style) and then have an open lab (like Georgia Tech and the UW have set up at the LDA exhibit hall) where parents, teachers, adults, children can become exposed to the technology they may need for middle school, high school, and postsecondary/work. I am expecting that the UW and Georgia Tech would coordinate bringing tools for the demonstration/hands on portion.
